My wife and I first visited the Mobile Bay area on July 4th 2018. My goal was to tour the USS Alabama which has been used in various disguises for so many "battleship" movies. Also wanted to hook up with an old classmate who lives...More
It is such a large area perhaps choose which part of the bay and tributaries you want to explore. It probably is best by boat but there are many water side areas to observe wildlife and nature. As with any outdoor activity check the weather,...More
The most dog friendly beach is on dauphin island. The bay is huge so can't say all of bay will accommodate your pooch. If you stay in Mobile the Battle House Hotel is dog friendly and is located close to all attractions... More

New GS/Fort Morgan visitor (3 Replies)
We have been vacationing on the Outer Banks for years--on Hatteras Island near the lighthouse. We are planning to vacation in GS/FM in May and are curious about how our "daily activities" in Fort Morgan will compare to our OBX favorites! I think I have the housing figured out, but my husband likes to surf fish and we have always had fun crabbing in the sound on Hatteras Island. How is the surf fishing (I assume he'll need a license) and are there crabs in Mobile Bay we can try to catch??...More

To address the crabbing question, most people take a flashlight and a net out on the beach at night. You can do a search about it on this forum. I have been to the OB, but I live here :-) I think you'll like it!

Ferry from Mobile Bay to Ft. Morgan (15 Replies)
Has anyone used the ferry to get from Mobile Bay to Ft. Morgan, rather than using the interstate for the last part of that drive (to Gulf Shores area)? We're going to GS in July and are staying in a beach house on Ft. Morgan. Some of the family is thinking it might save us some time to take the ferry from Mobile Bay. So, I have lots of questions. Is the ferry ride faster than driving out to Ft. Morgan? Is it expensive? Is it safe with little kids on board (thinking about getting out of car...More

we did it four years ago, It was hot.... And kinda slow... But it would by pass all the rush crowd... I can't remember the price....But I don't think it was much........ Not much shade.............
Best route from Hernando,MS to Fort Morgan, AL (6 Replies)
We booked a beach house in Fort Morgan for the month of October. We are thinking about trying alternate route to Fort Morgan. Anticipate arriving in Mobile around 2pm on a Monday afternoon. Would like to go the west shore of Mobile Bay to Dauphin Island and take the ferry to Fort Morgan. Which is the best route if entering Mobile from Hattiesburg to Dauphin Island? The beach house is about a mile from Fort Morgan.

Two things ...this route does not go to Mobile, and ..are you going to Hattiesburg for a reason.? Why not Meridian then 45 to north Mobile?
